YEKATERINBURG, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev pledged to give the support to the development of industrial design in Russia. Medvedev has made a statement at a meeting with businesspeople, which is being held at the exhibition Innoprom on Thursday.
“Certainly, we will support this trend,” Medvedev pledged at a meeting with businesspeople that is being held at the exhibition Innoprom. “There are no doubts in this, moreover, to develop correctly our production industry, we should think over not only what consumer qualities one or another product has, but also how it looks like and how it can be sold - without this the today’s modern market is impossible,” Medvedev noted.
“Therefore, we are going to work in this direction, we hope for your aid,” the prime minister added. The prime minister noted one of issues on the agenda of the exhibition is devoted to industrial design this year. “We should acknowledge that we did not engage in this so deeply as other countries,” Medvedev said with regret. He added that he “is very glad that the current exhibition is devoted to the theme of industrial design.”
